Dear All,

We just tried some new marking pens that actually stay on the plastic 
cassette during processing and superfrost slides during staining.   The rep 
was kind enough to send sample, tested them on two different brand 
cassettes, and Erie Superfrost slides.  They do NOT dry out after a few 
uses, and have a superb fine tip for marking.   We did not try them under 
special staining conditions i.e i.e exposing slides to acids i.e. formic 
acid treatment of prion tissue sections before staining, or Bouins mordant 
for Massons trichrome.  Something to keep in mind and test out.

www.marketlabinc.com,  QL0479 Moist Mark plus markers 10/pk for $36.  Call 
them at 800 237-3604 and ask for a sample to try for your particular brand 
of cassette or slide, or special staining needs
